Well this interesting… BMX legends Ruben Alcantara and Garrett Byrnes, along with Mike Bennett and Ari Cruz retrofitted some 20″ BMX bikes with mountain bike suspension and some extra knobby tires and took them to the mountain. I have no clue if this idea has ever been toyed with before or not, but seeing two of the most bad-ass dudes to ever touch BMX bikes ride these 20″ hybrid machines was impressive to say the least. Is Ruben Alcantara about open up yet another door for BMX?
“13 years ago I had the opportunity to ride the bike park of Whistler with a mountain bike, I had so much fun but I was thinking all the time : I wish I could ride this on my bmx…after that I started to work on it but I couldn’t finished right and left it in a side…until now.. ” – Ruben Alcantara
